I have a wd45 with a trip bucket. My problem is the lift wants to creep up. I have read the manual and I don"t anything on adjustment addresses this. It went all the way up and now I have a bent hydraulic cylinder. Would this bend a cylinder? I was moving rocks but the lift was working fine. This the second cylinder bent. Also how can I straighten the lift frame? Thanks to anyone that can help.

When using the bucket, you push the lever all the way up until you reach the desired height. Then you lower the lever until it clicks which stops the rise. You need the hydraulics set for lift and hold to get the desired action. If you have the decals on the battery box, they should explain it. The other manuals do as well.

I read your post again. Maybe I am missing something.

If your cylinders can get bent, the cylinders are too long. These cylinders should reach the end of stroke before you bend them.

I'd have to see the lift frame to venture a guess on how to straighten it.

Denny thanks for the reply. After reading the manual again I will check the pump this weekend to see how it is adjusted. Sounds like it should solve my problem. Then I will check on the cylinder size with a local mechanic. This unit has not had an easy life so I don"t know what has all been done to it. Thanks again Mike
